When Darkness Calls

For days, in fact since the third of this month, I have been unable to speak much. When I woke, and it was put in my spirit, and on my heart to write today, I wasn’t exactly jumping up and out bed. I thought, look at what is going on in the world. How is what I and we are enduring even important?

John 1:5 ESV

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

1 John 1:5-7 ESV

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

John 11:10 ESV

But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.”

Luke 1:79 ESV

To give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

Acts 26:18 ESV

To open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

John 3:19-21 ESV

And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”

1 Thessalonians 5:5 ESV

For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.

Psalm 139:12 ESV

Even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.

Colossians 1:13 ESV

He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son,

2 Corinthians 6:14 ESV

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?

John 8:12 ESV

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

1 John 2:8-11 ESV

At the same time, it is a new commandment that I am writing to you, which is true in him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining. Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

Revelation 9:2 ESV

He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft.

Hebrews 12:18 ESV

For you have not come to what may be touched, a blazing fire and darkness and gloom and a tempest

Matthew 8:12 ESV

While the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

Ephesians 5:8 ESV

For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light

Ephesians 6:12 ESV

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Isaiah 50:10 ESV

Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the voice of his servant? Let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of theLord and rely on his God.

Romans 1:21 ESV

For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

1 Peter 2:9 ESV

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Ephesians 5:11 ESV

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.

Isaiah 9:2 ESV

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shined.

1 John 1:6 ESV

If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.

2 Peter 2:4 ESV

For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment;

 

Romans 13:12 ESV

The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.

 

Yet, it is to GOD. Our very breath is important to Him. He doesn’t focus on the wrong, but rejoices in the right. In my life, I have truly never been so weary. For weeks I have cried out to GOD from my soul. It isn’t just because of the death of our only child. It is so much more than that.

 

Darkness has been calling. In fact, everywhere I have looked, there has been darkness. Or, so I thought. It came through friends who were hurt, lashing out and assuming. It arrived through memories. For all intensive purposes that darkness was death.

But yesterday something happened. God used someone who didn’t know me, to reach out into the darkness and sincerely offer HIS LOVE. Yes, many have been praying. But, so few have reached out. I know it’s scary to watch someone suffer. when we are so wounded ourselves, we often want to or choose to run away. I hold no ill will towards anyone, or harbor any unforgiveness. I simply thank GOD that He used someone.

 

 

THIS is where HIS Glory is birthed. It comes into the darkness. It comes slowly and gently and at times painfully, it is formed here. Without really knowing it, I have been seeking God for answers. I have been sitting with HIM for weeks, just allowing GOD alone to stroke my shower and bathe me in LOVE.

 

 

I have been screaming on the inside. My body started just a few days ago to tremble. I thought, it’s just the grief. But, it wasn’t it was and IS the presence of GOD. I feared He was gone, had left me. Yet, all along, He was with me.

 

 

This is a very personal entry. It is very self reflective, from HIS perspective. Because this morning, I saw GOD crying. I am not saying I have seen GOD per se. But, I have seen what we know as GOD. I saw images of HIS children suffering.

 

 

Yesterday, I watched something. You see, I know the WORD of GOD. I know it deep within. But, having said that, what I didn’t know is GOD in us is HIS word. He wants to LOVE us with it. He desires to HEAL us with it. There is a balm is Gilead. There is healing in HIS hands.

 

 

The things in this world will look really bad. Darkness will call, and sometimes we will answer. But, I am very thankful to GOD alone that, even when we do, HIS LOVE will not end. Yes, we may not feel it the same way, until we come to HIM in TRUTH and realness seeking HIS FORGIVENESS.

 

 

I used to speak of GOD resurrecting me. In fact, I would say daily that He does this. But somehow over the last few months, I had forgotten that He does this in sorrow too.  I am beyond words grateful for the brothers and sisters who reach out even when the darkness is thick. Those who take time to cut through all the rigamortis.

 

 

God is using many people. He is, in this season. He is even using people trapped and confined in darkness. For a few days, I didn’t post anything. Because, I didn’t have anything nice to say. I simply prayed silently. Most often not even knowing. I was reminded that sometimes the most effective prayers come in the form of tears.

Years ago when mom passed into God’s arms, I wrote a power. It was called “the Rainbows”

I don’t remember much about it, except this. It was written after seeing my first double rainbow. I remember looking at it and recognizing the reflection. It is an illusion, that comes from fragments of light. Yet, it is beautiful. It captures just how we look in reflection to GOD. Backwards, faded, yet Glorious in His LIGHT. ~ like a mother and a child….or a father and a child. WE are the FAMILY of GOD.

 

 

This morning, shortly after God woke me, I got a phone call. I didn’t answer. I simply handed it to my husband. David, though half asleep answered. The person said they had the wrong number. I thought, “wow that is what happens when GOD takes the phone call.” It was something so simple yet, so profound. when the enemy calls, GOD says, “wrong number.”

 

 

Many people in ministry, well meaning people kept telling me to read the word every day. Yet, I couldn’t focus. I couldn’t read. I couldn’t even listen. I could just watch. I could just stare. I could just be. All I kept hearing from GOD was this. “Rest my child. REST in me.”

 

 

For days, until yesterday in fact, when David and i prayed at night, only HE would pray. I would simply agree. Even last night I could barely come up with anything to say. So, I mumbled, thank you.

 

 

I hope somehow in the midst of this nothingness, this darkness, GOD is still using us. I have wondered how He could? Yet, again I know that NOTHING is impossible for HIM. I thank GOD for reminding me that she, our butterfly is not gone. She is simply more hidden than before.

 

 

I thank HIM for the honor of being able to shoulder pain for others, even while walking through the Valley of the Shadow o Death. I thank GOD that in the time where I could have caused great harm, I did not. I forgive the many people involved, because even if they think they knew what they were trying to do, they did not.

I CAN LOVE AGAIN

THE DEAD WILL NOT CREATE DEFEAT

IT IS ONLY THOSE WHO LOVE FROM HEAVEN

WHO WILL MAKE THIS WORLD COMPLETE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

GOD walked with me, hand in hand for 18 days. He was with me in bed as I just sat and often wept. He broke me out of many a prison. Thank GOD for HIS Grace, mercy and love to endure even the darkest most cavernous darkness.

Thank you for the sunshine. Thank you for the rain. Thank you for the JOY. Thank you for the pain. Thank you that YOU alone have overcome, again.

REMEMBER that GOD never promised NO PAIN and SUFFERING in the PROmISED LAND. He simply said, the promises are kept there. ~

 

 

 

DARKNESS will CALL. LET GOD Answer.

 

 

I have wanted to scream, but couldn’t. I have wanted to curse GOD, but wouldn’t. I have wanted to HATE, but cannot. Because deep within I know that when darkness calls, even on the phone, that GOD will overcome. He already has. We simply must receive it.

In His grace and GLORY,

E and Family

Seek HIS Face, and NOT His hand

This morning is the 25th of January. The number 25 represents BLESSING. Oh my we are in NEED of that as HIS COGS. The number 1 is New Beginnings. So we are in the month of new beginnings. Many people look at us wondering why we have JOY. They ask why are you Jubilant? Perhaps, because they don’t understand the TRUE JOY of GOD. It is NOT based on circumstances. It is based on HIS LOVE, and how much of it WE are willing to receive.

Lions_Eyes_ezr

Our family chooses daily to become SATURATED in the LOVE of GOD. It is the most AMAZING, WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, PRECIOUS, HEALING, PHENOMENAL, INDESCRIBABLE gift that we can enjoy. It is FREE for us to receive because JESUS, the son of GOD and our brother, died on a CROSS over 2,000 years ago. He did this so HIS seed could be planted once again. It was planted when He was birthed as a human. Birthing can happen so many times. He is birthed again through us, HIS brothers and sisters daily as well.

GOD is NOT limited by ANYTHING!!!! Yesterday, I was really being challenged. My earthly father passed from this earth. The challenge came in seeing how everyone responded. When people pass on, no one knows how to take it. We stand not in judgement in any way, shape of form. Because we know how it feels to be judged. We simply keep praying and praising. GOD will finally change things. When He does it will be JUST the time it is needed. He is ALWAYS on time. God is never early, or late. HE alone is perfect!!!

I thank GOD that even though it looks like the enemy is winning, he is NOT!!!!!! I am not a religious person. I don’t look at the situation and try and always make it about GOD. It just IS about HIM. So, no matter how people think He can be removed, He cannot. People may look at me or us and think we do this, but the fact is GOD just keeps our focus on HIM. When we begin to receive that WE are truly LOVED and we cannot earn HIS grace, mercy or peace which comprise HIS LOVE, then and ONLY then can we walk in HIS FREEDOM!!!!!!!!

SO, I personally repent for myself and others in the body of Christ. We have been and many are being affected by things surrounding them or  others around them, and also for allowing my focus to be removed from GOD, even for a moment. I ask HIM to forgive me and release me from burdens I don’t need to try and carry. I come out of agreement with ANY offenses.  I choose today to stay DIVORCED from the enemy of our souls. In Jesus Holy name and blood we affirm our GOD who is comprised of our Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. GLORY to our mighty and awesome GOD!!!!! IJN AMEN

We_must_seek_His_face our-lives-are-in-the-hands-of-god

We have to seek HIS face and NOT His hand. God is not here to give us a hand out. He is here to give us a hand UP out of the pit. Will you take HIS hand and climb out of the quicksand??? This is a daily act and sometimes moment to moment as well. Please FORGIVE yourself and all the people the enemy has used to wound you. It begins with just that one thing. When we choose forgiving GOD moves so mightily?

Don’t we ALL need something Glorious to happen? DO you not know how much GOD wants that too? He LOVES  LOVES LOVES to bless us, HIS kids. DEATH is not the end of everything. It is simply like high school to college. It is similar to traveling abroad to a NEW land. It is a NEW start and a NEW BEGINNING and more work than we could ever imagine in the holiest of ways, as that new life starts. When we truly understand that WE are already dead in CHRIST in the sense that, WE died with HIM, we fear NOT any DEATH. WE are ALIVE in HIM because HE LIVES in US and we have the JOY of being resurrected through HIM as well.

We have seen Resurrections and been them. Our eyes cannot ever be the same. Our prayer is that GOD reveal HIS truth to the many who are locked into deception. We have been there, and still surrender daily. We are NOT in any way better than anyone else. GOD is though, and HE alone will turn situations around. GOD does not HAVE to include us. He simply does because HE LOVES US!!!!!

So are you seeking HIS FACE so that YOU will recognize it? Because soon THAT will be even more necessary than it used to be. The windows of HIS GLORY are open for everyone wanting to receive. BUT, there will be a time when HIS windows close. LORD, have your way in our lives. Teach us more and more about who YOU are and transform us in the process.

In HIS Spirit and TRUTH

Now it would be so easy for us to give credit to the enemy from a place of bitterness, and pain. We have seen many just locked in prisons, some who know and some who do not.  But the fact is, the victory is in HIS LOVE!!!! It is through praising GOD!!!! We have been those people locked up within ourselves.

download

It was and IS His LOVE, Grace, Mercy and PEACE. We have been enjoying in HIM lots of LOVE and LAUGHTER which is just beautiful. Are the spirits mad? Well, YES. But, that is ok. I and my husband do fall down, and spiritually skin our knees. But, that does NOT mean GOD LOVES us any less. In fact, HIS discipline comes from the most beautiful place ever. It is because HE LOVES us, HIS children, HIS precious COGS. (Children of God Supers)

280267863_640 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA goldenmessg

It is TIME to WORSHIP in spirit and truth. DEATH is not the final destiny. Death cannot stop TRUE LOVE!!! There is no LOVE more TRUE than that of our mighty GOD!!!! Hallelujah!!!! He is faithful!!!

There are many who have a form of godliness but not much truth therein. We have people who are in a family that are so bound up by unforgiveness.  This causes constant tension, and constant STRIFE.  The same people who used to offer in kindness and LOVE, to help and assist, have become so wounded that they just don’t even bother anymore.

LORD, bind up all of our wounds, of every single person who is willing to receive it. Many of us have given and given and given, and we have forgotten to receive. It is like we have forgotten how. I ask you awesome GOD to remind us. Because when we are not receiving and not giving we are simply exisiting.  Which is really not honoring to GOD, and it is not much different from just being zombies.

The_Urantia_Book_Word_Cloud_194_375 true-worshippers-god-is-our-victory2-1024x768

I thank GOD and praise HIM for even this kind of persecution coming out. So many are thinking they are ok, and settled and cannot be touched. But GOD. Soon, you will see that if you do not sincerely worsip HIM in spirit and truth, and DRINK Him in, through communion with HIM, only destruction will find you.

http://www.openbible.info/topics/true_worship

John 4:23-24 ESV

But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Matthew 15:9 ESV

In vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’”

Hebrews 13:15 ESV

Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.

John 4:23 ESV

But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.

Revelation 20:4 ESV

Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

 

Revelation 13:8 ESV

And all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.

WE are NEW creations in Christ!!!! So are we gonna BE just that, or hold onto the OLD? Because THIS is what happens when FATHER GOD makes us new through HIS son and our brother JESUS and the Holy Spirit.

newman00

 

In our lives it would be easier to choose pain, but in actuality when you begin to see that ONLY more pain follows the “easiest choice” becomes what looks like the HARDEST one.

Choose to worship HIM in SPIRIT and TRUTH. When we worship through HIM then and ONLY then does HIS GLORY totally reign down.

In His Grace and Glory,

THE SKY IS FALLING!

his morning when I woke, I had gotten distinctly that it was time to write abt what’s next. The warnings have been sent out, and many refuse to submit to GOD. They refuse to let GOD be in complete sovereignty of their lives. Is GOD the KING of your world? Or is He only a savior. That by definition is one who saves and fixes things when they get really bad.  Am not by any means saying that being a savior is not important. But, even more important is allowing GOD to rule in ALL we partake of.

images

As a child we all heard the story of Chicken Little. This little creature, in fear believed the sky was falling. Is that how it seemed? Well, YES. In this season the sky will be actually FALLING because GOD’s GLORY will invade, from the HEAVENS to earth. Now know something, when this happens, as first it feels like ALL HELL breaks loose. In our flesh, because we are on a human journey, it can BURN. It can hurt, ache, and just generally feel uncomfortable. Remember that our FLESH is not forever.

the sky is falling

When it feels like your whole world has ended, and it will, probably a few times, CRY out to GOD. SEEK HIS ways and HIS TRUTH. In fact, DO IT NOW, because if not NOW then when the horrific stuff arrives, you will feel blindsided. I thank GOD that HIS Heaven is open, eventhough it feels intense, and requires pain like we never knew we could endure.

I thank GOD for HIS GLORY that is falling down around us. Blessings will FALL, and so will challenges. Whom do we TRUST? Whom do we FEAR? Whom do we LOVE and worship??? In our flesh we could be so angry with GOD. But, what good would that do. It’s not like recent events had no preparation. Do we grieve, of course we do. This child though, is not our world. We honored and still do, GOD in her. Just now, in a different way. The sky is truly FALLING and people better get ready.

Mark 13

Amplified Bible (AMP)

13 And as [Jesus] was coming out of the temple [[a]area], one of His disciples said to Him, Look, Teacher! Notice the sort and quality of these stones and buildings!

2 And Jesus replied to him, You see these great buildings? There will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be loosened and torn down.

3 And as He sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple [[b]enclosure], Peter and James and John and Andrew asked Him privately,

4 Tell us when is this to take place and what will be the sign when these things, all [of them], are about to be accomplished?

5 And Jesus began to tell them, Be careful and watchful that no one misleads you [about it].

6 Many will come in [[c]appropriating to themselves] the name [of Messiah] which belongs to Me [[d]basing their claims on the use of My name], saying, I am [He]! And they will mislead many.

7 And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not get alarmed (troubled and frightened); it is necessary [that these things] take place, but the end is not yet.

8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines and calamities. This is but the beginning of the [e]intolerable anguish and suffering [only the first of the [f]birth pangs].

9 But look to yourselves; for they will turn you over to councils, and you will be beaten in the synagogues, and you will stand before governors and kings for My sake as a testimony to them.

10 And the good news (the Gospel) must first be preached to all nations.

11 Now when they take you [to court] and put you under arrest, do not be anxious beforehand about what you are to say [g]nor [evenmeditate about it; but say whatever is given you in that hour and at[h]the moment, for it is not you who will be speaking, but the Holy Spirit.

12 And brother will hand over brother to death, and the father his child; and children will take a stand against their parents and [have] them put to death.

13 And you will be hated and detested by everybody for My name’s sake, but he who patiently perseveres and endures to the end will be saved ([i]made a partaker of the salvation by Christ, and delivered [j]from spiritual death).

14 But when you see the abomination of desolation mentioned by Daniel the prophet standing where it ought not to be—[and] let the one who reads take notice and consider and understand and heed [this]—then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

15 Let him who is on the housetop not go down into the house nor go inside to take anything out of his house;

16 And let him who is in the field not turn back again to get his mantle (cloak).

17 And alas for those who are pregnant and for those who have nursing babies in those days!

18 Pray that it may not occur in winter,

19 For at that time there will be such affliction (oppression and tribulation) as has not been from the beginning of the creation which God created until this particular time—and [k]positively never will be [again].

20 And unless the Lord had shortened the days, no human being would be saved (rescued); but for the sake of the elect, His chosen ones (those whom He [l]picked out for Himself), He has shortened the days.

21 And then if anyone says to you, See, here is the Christ (the Messiah)! or, Look, there He is! do not believe it.

22 False Christs (Messiahs) and false prophets will arise and show signs and [work] miracles to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect (those God has chosen out for Himself).

23 But look to yourselves and be on your guard; I have told you everything beforehand.

24 But in those days, after [the affliction and oppression and distress of] that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light;

25 And the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.

26 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great (kingly) power and glory (majesty and splendor).

27 And then He will send out the angels and will gather together His elect (those He has [m]picked out for Himself) from the four winds, from the farthest bounds of the earth to the farthest bounds of heaven.

28 Now learn a lesson from the fig tree: as soon as its branch becomes tender and it puts forth its leaves, you recognize and know that summer is near.

29 So also, when you see these things happening, you may recognize and know that He is near, at [the very] door.

30 Surely I say to you, this generation ([n]the whole multitude of people living at that one time) positively will not perish or pass away before all these things take place.

31 Heaven and earth will perish and pass away, but My words will not perish or pass away.

32 But of that day or that hour not a [single] person knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

33 Be on your guard [constantly alert], and watch [o]and pray; for you do not know when the time will come.

34 It is like a man [[p]already] going on a journey; when he leaves home, he puts his servants in charge, each with his particular task, and he gives orders to the doorkeeper to be constantly alert andon the watch.

35 Therefore watch (give strict attention, be cautious and alert), for you do not know when the Master of the house is coming—in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrowing, or in the morning—

36 [Watch, I say] lest He come suddenly and unexpectedly and find you asleep.

37 And what I say to you I say to everybody: Watch (give strict attention, be cautious, active, and alert)!

The COST of TRUE Love

Tonight GOD woke me saying, “Daughter of Zion you must release this word.

He says,  On this first day of the YEAR of change, as 14 is Deliverance, my children must be reminded.  They must gently and lovingly be admonished. My babies must remember from whence they came, and will return. There is a COST for TRUE Love says our Heavenly Father. The cost was paid by my son. The battles and full war have been won. In the Heavenlies ALL has taken place. Prepare in me. Know that I alone will cause MY HEAVENS to invade what many of you consider your earth.

I have sent many of my army commanders and generals, even privates to give messages. Heed these warnings beloved Children. The enemy may come LIKE a roaring Lion, but I AM THE LION of JUDAH. I, my son, and the Holy Spirit will light your path. Many of you in the presence of holiness will be cities on the hills. Remember I alone control the storm. REST in ME. Do so like never before. Listen to my voice. Choose MY ways. They are the ONLY ones which bring to LIFE what must come.

I have said 365 times in my word, BE NOT Afraid. My precious ones, there is no NEED for FEAR. It can cause temporary restriction to occur. The winds of HEAVEN are blowing. MY WINDS alone. There will be much GLORY falling down like rain. Watch and observe. Quiet yourselves before me.

Thank you my precious children, especially to those who faithful to me, even unto death. For DEATH cannot stop MY LOVE. It is TRUE. It cannot even delay it. I AM the GREAT I AM and I am bound by nothing. There is no space and time in the Heavens. There is ONLY Beautiful Healing. Come my children, drink of ME, eat of MY MANNA, partake of holy communion with me. Bathe in my anointed oils. Receive my LOVE and NEVER be the same. Keep letting me shower you with my holiness. Know the persecution will appear hotter, but I will never let you be tempted beyond what must be. It will NEVER be more than you can handle through me, and more than I can take care of.

YOU will NEVER BE ALONE!!!!!!!!

LOVE your FATHER who made you via

A Holy DEPARTURE

When I woke up this morning, GOD put it on my heart to again, write about surrender. This season will be earth shaking. Look at for example what our family is enduring. We have just encountered the most gut wrenching, heart breaking, and LIFE changing event anyone could. We released a child back into Heaven. It was done just as God desired it to be. It was NOT easy. It was NOT something that we were, in our flesh overjoyed to do. But, what it was, is and always will be is simple. A HOLY departure.

download (1) arrivals-departures-icon departure

Scripture says, “We are absent from the body but present with the LORD.” This happens when we breathe our final breath here on earth. Yet, most may not be aware of something. When we arrive in Heaven for all eternity, the REAL work begins. The assignments that people have on earth through GOD do not end. It is a holy continuance.

I have a dear sister who went to court recently. She was really nervous, and has not always had a great relationship with GOD. I say those together because anxiety is able to come because of the fear we as humans often encounter. I have seen and am seeing her faith in GOD’s ability to take care of her truly take off. It is like a holy rocket ship!!! God is telling the stuff coming against her that it must GO. She is learning to REST in HIM for whatever comes. As are we ALL to some degree. 😉

This last week as GOD moved in a way we may not fully have expected, and in some ways that we cannot fully understand; A HOLY departure was made. In fact, I would say a few of them combined together. THIS is what UNITY in the bODY of Christ is all about! It is when the GLORY of GOD, which began as the tough stuff, to put it mildly becomes perfectly formed here on earth the way it is in HEAVEN.

(scriptures about HOLY departures)

My husband and our children will always be 100% fastened to GOD. What this is about is simple. It means that when GOD decides something, even if that thing is seemingly terrifying, or excruciating, we submit and surrender to HIM. People ask us often, “How do you have the faith you do?” I would say to them, and still do, “we don’t.” It is GOD who does. See, even our FAITH belongs to HIM alone. I told another beautiful sister, one who was enduring testing how faithful GOD was and is. I told her that He wanted me to share something with her. What it was is this, “my faith dies too.” She began to say, ” if someone like you has that happen, where is the hope?” I said, ” Every time my faith dies, I surrender it to GOD. Then GOD, in HIS infinite LOVE resurrects it.

We are not unique in some respects, and yet are in others. But, what is VERY unique and special is GOD’s design. Every day I thank HIM for continuing to humble us in this process. Truly, how can we be anything but grateful??? If my husband and I were to focus on the circumstances, we would NEVER get out of bed. But, we cannot do this. It does not honor GOD when we do long term. Plus, people partake of HIS fruits through the ministries. They come and take a REST under HIS holy umbrellas. As do we.

sunset_departure

Every single thing David and I and even our children share and have shared is available. Meaning, if someone wants to use it and is led by GOD, we say “God ahead!.” Giggles….I typed Go ahead, and He typed GOD. 🙂 Love it!!!! GOD speaks through us. WE are His mouth pieces. WE are HIS mouth prices. Cause there is a HIGH price paid for serving HIM. WE are HIS heaven on earth!!!!!

Today we encourage you to BLESS GOD. Praise HIM to your very soul. If you can’t do this, just keep crying out to HIM and you will get there. We ALL have a choice, no matter what comes. WE have to consistently and constantly chose GOD. No matter how we feel, or what is going on around us.

1 Corinthians 2:13 ESV

And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.

John 1:1 ESV

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Revelation 21:8 ESV

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

James 5:16 ESV

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

Titus 1:2 ESV

In hope of eternal life, which God, who never lies, promised before the ages began

2 Timothy 2:15 ESV

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

2 Corinthians 5:6-8 ESV

So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

1 Corinthians 2:14 ESV

The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.

 

John 3:16 ESV

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Let GOD cause you to FLY and have as many HOLY DEPARTURES as He will ring. Not to mention as many as He will bring. 😉 You did it again GOD, and it was not an oops moment. It was an EEK. An Eternal EverlaSting KINGDOM moment in time. For your LOVE goes beyond ALL space and time. WOW, you amaze me LORD. I am forever changed. I am forever in AWE of you.

His NEW Beginnings ~

Today, I began writing, or should I say typing as God dictated. 😉

Anyway, I had the whole NOTE for FB written, was tagging people and then the laptop went dead. Regardless of why, I was annoyed. My husband said, “don’t worry we will recreate it.” Here are the facts, when we “mess up” God knows, and He has a plan to fix it. he is the KING of resurrection!

I thought WOW that is interesting…after my husband also, led by GOD, reminded me to forgive. He was correct, I did not need to STAY annoyed, irritated or even anger. THAT would have NOT been helpful. Not even a little bit…

So now, I pray GOD will resurrect the wisdom He gave us when working on the original. 🙂

I recall GOD sowing us that HIS GLORY has invaded us in the past, will again in the present and am sure also in the future. It will do so in a way that makes our jaws drop and your JAWS too.

I recall sharing that FATHER revealed to us a few things. He showed us that when we begin to see through HIS eyes, though space and time may actually be short, they appear LONG. But, it happens in the holiest of ways 🙂 HIS peace consumes US as we surrender!!!

Some people must do so as their bodies are destroyed. God showed us this too. I am not, nor are WE advocating sickness or disease. However, what I can say is when those things come, they can be for various purposes. We have to RELEASE ALL to GOD. If we do NOT surrender ALL to HIM, then indirectly we end up holding those other things as idols above HIM.

With Sarah Beth, I always laid her on the altar of Heaven. Pretty much daily, was reminded, and even now am, that she is HIS child first and ours second. The best parenting advice any of us can receive is just that. A child we are given is for a reason, a season and a lifetime. In this case, her lifetime may have ended on earth, but has only continued with a NEW BEGINNING in Heaven.

Sarah Elizabeth had her own Glory Invasions. They began very early. The 3 to us that are most significant happened at age 3 1/2, 6 1/2 and 8. David and I believe BIRTH begins in the Heavenlies, and it begins at conception. SO, Sarah Elizabeth was actually 8 when she left us, even though her earth b-day was 4 days later.

When we went into Seattle Children’s Hospital with her at 3 1/2 GOD moved so powerfully! We received HIS favor in every way we could possibly ponder. It was AMAZING!!! Then, at 6 1/2 exactly 3 years later we knew it was different. The second time it was just awful, evil, hateful, blatent, horrendous. The whole MOOD and TONE was totally different. We knew it would be a short stay. The third time, the last time, it was mostly like the first with a small amt like the second time. It was tough to discern how long this stay would be. In the end it was 28 days. That fascinates me, because 28 biblically represents Eternal Life.

I believe Sarah Elizabeth was fashioned after the angels. I don’t sense she knew 100% just how powerful GOD was and is in her. But, I am certain she knows it now This kid, wise beyond her years, and earthly age, was used so much. She still is. God uses her to heal us and so many others daily. Please know that when someone passes from this place into Heaven, the real work begins. It is not just a pleasure cruise.

I am so grateful GOD chose us to be Sarah Beth’s parents. Truly, it is an honor, and we are privileged for the time we had here on this earth being loved by GOD through her. 🙂 We must remember as persecution seems to be increasing, what will be targeted is GOD in us. So, we cannot take personal, what is truly about HIM.

 

‘i carry your heart’ by E.E. Cummings

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)

i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

This poem truly is how we feel about our GOD in our princess, treasure and baby girl. Of HIS royal blood she came, and stays. We thank the FATHER in Heaven, our brother JESUS, and the AMAZING Holy SPirit for trusting us with her. Such a JOY to know GOD had  and has HIS way!!!

GOD gets the GLORY in ALL things, one way or another. If it is rough He turns it around. He never spares the R O D – Reversal of Destiny. We have had so many NEW Beginnings and will have many more. LIFE has changed again as we know it.

A dear sister of ours Barbara Gaines told us something today. In October, she watched Sarah Beth while David and I ran an errand. Sarah Beth was talking to her and confided in her. She knew God had a plan, maybe was not 100% happy with it, but in the end, she submitted and received her resurrection. Heaven has a beautiful gift truly 🙂

She told our dear sister, “Daddy will have to take care of mommy, cause I am going on a trip. The angels are coming to get me. ” I was told this information today and wept. I wept tears of JOY. I am so in AWE of the LOVE of our GOD!!!!! Many have now shared that God showed them what was to come. I am glad, as is David, that only GOD revealed it to us.

God revealed it to us through Sarah Beth. After all was done, we heard her say to us something beautiful. She said, “Mommy, daddy, I tried to come back but I can’t. God needs me more. Forgive me.” Our response was, “baby girl, we are ok with that. ” I then spoke with our doctor. His name, Doctor Spack patched Sarah Beth with God’s guidance as best as he could. But GOD healed her from HIS mercy. Sometimes, the physical body can only endure so much. Glory to GOD for the LOVE of our GOD.

Ecclesiastes 3

Amplified Bible (AMP)

3 To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven:

2 A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted,

3 A time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break down and a time to build up,

4 A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 A time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones together, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

6 A time to get and a time to lose, a time to keep and a time to cast away,

7 A time to rend and a time to sew, a time to keep silence and a time to speak,

8 A time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

9 What profit remains for the worker from his toil?

10 I have seen the painful labor and exertion and miserable business which God has given to the sons of men with which to exercise and busy themselves.

11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

12 I know that there is nothing better for them than to be glad and to getand do good as long as they live;

13 And also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor—it is the gift of God.

14 I know that whatever God does, it endures forever; nothing can be added to it nor anything taken from it. And God does it so that men will [reverently] fear Him [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is].

15 That which is now already has been, and that which is to be already has been; and God seeks that which has passed by [so that history repeats itself].

16 Moreover, I saw under the sun that in the place of justice there was wickedness, and that in the place of righteousness wickedness was there also.

17 I said in my heart, God will judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time [appointed] for every matter and purpose and for every work.

18 I said in my heart regarding the subject of the sons of men, God is trying (separating and sifting) them, that they may see that by themselves [under the sun, without God] they are but like beasts.

19 For that which befalls the sons of men befalls beasts; even [in the end] one thing befalls them both. As the one dies, so dies the other. Yes, they all have one breath and spirit, so that a [a]man has no preeminence over a beast; for all is vanity (emptiness, falsity, and futility)!

20 All go to one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.

21 Who knows the spirit of man, whether it goes upward, and the spirit of the beast, whether it goes downward to the earth?

22 So I saw that there is nothing better than that a man should rejoice in his own works, for that is his portion. For who shall bring him back to see what will happen after he is gone?

Footnotes:

  1. Ecclesiastes 3:19 Does the Bible really teach that “a man has no preeminence over a beast”? No! The Bible only records that the book of Ecclesiastes says it. Then why is this book in the Bible? Can it possibly be called inspired by God when it makes such “under the sun” pronouncements, some only partially true, others entirely false? Here is the tested answer: “Every scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching … reproof… correction, for instruction… in righteousness.” (II Tim. 3:16 asv.) The divine purpose in including Ecclesiastes in the Bible is obvious. It gives a startling picture of how fatal it is for even the wisest of men to substitute man’s “wisdom” for God’s wisdom, and to attempt to live by it. Solomon’s reign began with God, gold, and glory. It ended with bafflement, brass, and bewildered acceptance of man’s having “no preeminence over a beast”!—man, who was made “in the image and likeness of God” (Gen. 1:27) and “but little lower than God [or heavenly beings]”! (Ps. 8:5.)

OUR GOD is FAITHFUL. He just is….in every way. We are overwhelmed by the LOVE and support and grateful to HIM more than ever. This season as things come and go, we encourage you to SEEK GOD. Do so about ALL things. For example, we do not celebrate many holidays anymore. GOD wants complete holiness. He will settle for nothing less. Let HIM reveal HIS truth to you so you and those you LOVE can walk in HIS FREEDOM.

LION of JUDAH keep roaring…and take good care of our sweet baby girl. WE LOVE YOU ALL and are keeping you ALL uplifted. We thank GOD for every prayer said on our behalf. BLESS the socks off of ALL those who pray mighty GOD. 🙂

The BLIND side

This morning when I woke up, I began reflecting on dreams, and truly thanking GOD for healing. You see, healing comes in many ways. Sometimes it can even come from the BLIND side. Think about the man who came to Jesus and could not see. He came seeking TRUTH and JESUS took some clay, and placed it on His eyes. This man received TRUTH and healing as the clay was removed. He received the LOVE of GOD and was set free completely of his blindness.

alternative-healing-arts-modalities

 

When HIS light encounters darkness, the DARKNESS flees. ~ A holy solar eclipse happens. GLORY!!!! ~

LORD, help us ALL to do this. To not settle for areas where we have been blinded. To not believe we can fix them, because we cannot. ONLY you alone are the healer. The world and the god that was given temporary authority, tries to blindside us. Our enemy is real, but so is the GOD who is above ALL gods. The one who is more LOVING than words can say. Who tirelessly goes after HIS kids to round them up and keep us from danger.

I am very used to having challenging dreams. But, recently one that began as a challenge turned into a place of healing. This was hugely encouraging. Because we have watched GOD heal many. At times we would sit back thinking, “when is it my turn.” Then of course we would repent, and keep surrendering to our mighty GOD and HIS timing. But here is something we did not know, while He was using us to heal them, we were also healing. We never stopped, and the more we let HIM heal us, the more we could and can be used to help others.

images images (1)

Isn’t this beautiful!!!! The blind side becomes the side that can see. What once was the BLIND leading the blind becomes those who SEE leading the BLIND to sight!!!! GLORY!!!!! I pray someone gets this. Cause when this hit this morning as God was washing me in HIS LOVE, I about literally fell down. I absolutely did…before HIM. God has never been blind. So, He continues to SEE all, and when we seek to have HIS vision, oh the GLORY that comes. 🙂

My heart is so FULL today. I was BLIND and at one time just wretched but thank you GOD for YOUR SIGHT!!!! Thank you that as the MORE we SEE through your eyes, we will have holy 20/20 vision. God is funny the way He reminds us that He is moving. I pray as more TRUTH hits this world, many will begin to really SEE God’s LOVE for what it is….IT is healing.

jesus healing a blind man

 

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
‘Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall profess, within the vail,
A life of joy and peace.

The following stanza was written by an an anonymous author, often replacing the sixth stanza, or inserted as the fourth.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.

 

Chorus:

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

http://www.constitution.org/col/amazing_grace.htm

Thank you LORD for your AMAZING GRACE, MERCY, LOVE, KINDNESS, and EVERYTHING you ARE!!!!

No more BLIND side for us. God used to have to hit us with proverbial spiritual 2 by 4’s and now, we SEE!!!! Hallelujah!!! LORD, we SEE you moving, we SEE your LOVE!!!! Remember JESUS healed them ALL. God healed ALL that came to HIM.  How did He heal them? He healed them through HIS father. We must know that to worship in spirit and truth and receive healing, we must do so from the FATHER in Heaven, His son and our brother Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. LORD, heal your LAND.

In His Grace and Glory,

INTENTIONAL

Today being the 8th, which is New beginnings is such a great time, to discuss this topic. Are we being intentional? Because if we are not intentionally receiving the LOVE of GOD daily, we have nothing to give. Meaning, we are like droughts that need water.  God cannot move as freely within us. Something interesting about our lives, is that when the WORD of GOD is introduced, miracles are happening. An example, is when our child has an issue, and she has her bible playing in the back ground. She wakes, the issue is gone. Glory to GOD!

You see THINGS are NOT always as they appear. God’s weapons are not of this world. He intentionally POURS out HIS LOVE upon us. So are we on purpose saying thank you? Or, are we just so affected by the spirit of entitlement or pride, that we reject it? No one likes rejection. Accepting something does not mean we like it. IT just means that we accept it. We accept feeling rejected, yet do NOT in any way, shape or FORM, except the spirit of REJECTION.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ESV

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

James 5:12 ESV

But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.

2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Mark 16:1-20 ESV

When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. …

Romans 8:1 ESV

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

Romans 1:1-32 ESV

Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations, …

John 1:14 ESV

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Psalm 34:1-22 ESV

Of David, when he changed his behavior before Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away. I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together! I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. …

1 John 5:7 ESV

For there are three that testify:

1 John 2:1-29 ESV

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him.

Hebrews 13:2 ESV

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

GOD is intentional with us….let HIM be intentional through you. We have a choice. Let’s make the best one. 🙂

Consider what JESUS did on a cross. Also, think about why He did this and for whom. The Father, our FATHER in Heaven sent His son to die for us. Not just to die simply, but to die a gruesome horrendous death. He was chosen to take on every evil that there is on HIM. We pray this really registers in a new way. That God reaches out HIS hand over your wounds to say STOP. So, that the GLORY of GOD can shine in your lives, and in ALL of ours. Because really LIFE should be about LOVE.

Do we deserve the LOVE of GOD? YES Is it because we did something to deserve it? NO This is why we deserve it, it is because HE LOVES us. So, even when our behavior does not warrant receiving it, we must. Because rejecting the LOVE of GOD is very dangerous in this season. If we are not every day being intentional, then things get way more complicated.

There are some who are intentional about causing trouble. I pray that those people still reach their destiny in HIM. Whatever it may be, that we ALL reach it. Someone said recently that, “It seems that when they get close to reaching God, He moves.” God is not moving away from us, but we can move away from HIM. We can, by making things about us for one. If we were to make things about us, wow our lives would be miserable.

In fact, we watch many people get stuck in that pit. We say this with LOVE….it will NEVER be about YOU or US. It will however ALWAYS be about GOD in YOU and in US. ~

scriptures on being Intentional ~

 

Is life perfect? NOPE Do we get our time table? NOPE But, is it worth it? YES Is GOD moving? YES Does HE love us? YES there is ALWAYS more GOOD than BAD. ALWAYS….

Because holy surrender is happening more and more. It does not look to us the same as it does to HIM. To us at times it can look scary, to say the least. But, the fact is GOD calls us to be crucified with HIM. This means, for HIM to use us we have to be broken before HIM and vulnerable before HIM. GOD sees us, when NO ONE else does. GOD alone sees our tears, fears, pain, etc…

Many of us have been taught to be STRONG no matter what. Here is the problem with that, it is not scriptural. GOD says, in our weakness, HE is strong. SO, how can he be if we attempt to strive and be strong ALL the time? David, me and our children God has given us feel weak a lot in this season. WE TRUST in GOD that He will sustain us, and HE always does. He uses us to minister, and sends people to us to be ministered to. Grateful, beyond words we are and humbled.

There are things GOD has had us do intentionally that baffle people. In a world where most are bound by things, and places, we live as Jesus did. Because we desire GOD to work through us more and more. Now, does it mean we will never have “nice” things again? Not necessarily, it simply means that those things did and do belong to GOD. He will restore and in abundance as He desires. WE simply must wait and praise HIM in the process. 🙂 We have nice things now, just not mas many as before, and that is so ok. IN fact, it has been VERY freeing. WE are thankful.

When we speak LIFE we get it in return, in fact the more we speak it, the more GOD moves. He is working hard on YOUR behalf. Please, receive this, and stop believing enemy lies. When we do that, believe the lies, it grieves God. He has taken me many times and shown me Heaven. Just last night He reminded me that everything we thought we “LOST” was there. GLORY TO GOD!!!!! When we are LOST He will come and find us. But, we have to WANT to be found. Cause the word says, those who lose their lives will find them.” We must be willing to die to self, in whatever way GOD desires. Meaning, we MUST lay down everything to HIM.

So, today, no matter what your circumstances, make a covenant with GOD to speak LIFE, that HE will use you and heal you in process as HE moves. There is enough death spoken. YOU have authority in HIM to change the world. HE does it through us….let HIM move, unrestricted, INTENTIONALLY. ~

God may not share HIS GLORY, but what we must know is WE are a reflection of HIS GLORY, so we are part of it being molded and formed. YES, He gets full credit, and because HE LOVES us HE shares the LOVE with us. HALLELUJAH!!!! Oh, how GOD LOVES HIS COGS!!!!!!

In His Grace and GLORY,

SEARCH and RESCUE

This post is gonna start here, and likely have a part two. It will be begun and then we will come back to it. Because man, GOD is giving us A LOT to feast on!!!! The title arrived because God began to remind us of many efforts of search and rescue. He brought to mind instances such as slavery. Remember Harriet Tubman? She was used to rescue slaves. What an awesome testimony!!! I have always been fascinated by her. I am beginning to understand just why this is so.

God’s children, HIS COGS, you and me are CALLED to be used by HIM to bring Heaven to earth. Can we ALL agree on this? Look at the LORD’s Prayer for example.

 

Matthew 6:9-13

Amplified Bible (AMP)
9 Pray, therefore, like this: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed (kept holy) be Your name.

10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven ([a]left, remitted, and let go of the debts, and have[b]given up resentment against) our debtors.

13 And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

So simple…So powerful. ~

 

 

Search and RESCUE is truly about LOST souls. Don’t we ALL know what it feels like to be LOST??? It is a horrible feeling. GOD knows. We have had people tell us GOD does not want us to feel. But, those same people left too early, too soon, and passed into Heaven. God so gives us grace to feel. What He does NOT want is for us to WORSHIP those feelings. That is something that the WORLD and the god of it does teach us. Please let GOD come and find you. Your spouse that you signed covenant with first is HIM. No matter what the circumstance.

Deep calls unto DEEP….surrender to HIS LOVE. There is NOTHING better. It is not religious it is simply a gift. He is calling us to go to the darkest places and be used in SEARCH and RESCUE. Is everyone going to receive HIS LOVE? No. The bible says clearly, some will not choose HIM. But, what about those who will? They need an opportunity to make a clear headed decision. LORD, give them a GLORY window and the mind of Christ, to at least GLIMPSE your LOVE.

It is very easy to just take LIFE for granted. But, we really shouldn’t, especially in THIS season. There is a HOLY URGENCY….notice it says HOLY URGENCY. Those arrive from FAITH not from FEAR. They come as blessings NOT curses. Will you be a Volunteer for GOD? We know many who are servants and even some who are slaves. Slavery may have been extracted, but don’t think the enemy won’t try and bring it back.

God sees ALL. He alone is waiting to take your HAND and pull you from the pit…in some cases the GRAVE. Do you want to be healed? Do you want to be FREE? What is it worth to you? Because HE died so YOU could LIVE. The reason the question of what is it worth to you, is simple. It requires complete surrender. GOD will not settle for less. He wants 100%!!!!

 

HE WON’T take LESS than ALL of us….He won’t relent….

 

You won’t relent until You have it all,
My heart is Yours (4x’s)

I’ll set You as a seal upon my heart
as a seal upon my arm
For there is love that is as strong as death
Jealousy, demanding as the grave
And many waters cannot quench this love

You won’t relent until You, have it all
My heart is Yours
You won’t relent until You, have it all
My heart is Yours

Come be the fire inside of me
Come be the flame upon my heart
Come be the fire inside of me
Until You and I are One (2x”s)

I don’t want to talk about You
Like You’re not in the room
I want to look right at You
I want to sing right to You (3x”s)

You won’t relent until You have it all,
My heart is Yours (4x’s)

I’ll set You as a seal upon my heart
as a seal upon my arm
For there is love that is as strong as death
Jealousy demanding as the grave
And many waters cannot quench this love

Come be the fire inside of me
Come be the flame upon my heart
Come be the fire inside of me
Until You and I are One (2x”s)

This son is one of my favorites….Right from the 3rd heaven worshiping our mighty GOD!!!!

LORD, fill us up and send us out…

 

God of Justice, Saviour to all
Came to rescue the weak and the poor
Chose to serve and not be served

Jesus, You have called us
Freely we’ve received
Now freely we will give

We must go live to feed the hungry
Stand beside the broken
We must go
Stepping forward keep us from just singing
Move us into action
We must go

To act justly everyday
Loving mercy in everyway
Walking humbly before You God

You have shown us, what You require
Freely we’ve received
Now freely we will give
Fill us up and send us out
Fill us up and send us out
Fill us up and send us out Lord

Tim Hughes – God of Justice (We Must Go)

 

These songs TRULY move me…and honor GOD within US….they are healing words and such TRUTH. Lord bless those whom you used to pen your desires and your words.

Look at what GOD does…HE goes after every LOST sheep. He does not want even one to STAY LOST. He LOVES so UNCONDITIONALLY, but know that to receive the LOVE there are conditions, because you have to be willing to do so. ~

scriptures on searching ~

 

God is sending many out, even many wounded on a SEARCH and RESCUE mission. Some will be travelling the GLOBE sharing the testimony of ALL God is doing. Some already are. Are you willing to GIVE up your comforts? Knowing that the purpose is SO MUCH greater than you or me, makes it less complicated to decide.

Here is the FACT…if you are unwilling to do as GOD calls you to do, then He cannot protect you in the same way as He could if you did. If you come into agreement with the enemy and receive what he offers, then GOD cannot help us like when we are in agreement with HIM. It really is a no brainer…God’s way may seem tougher, but it leads to LIFE not DEATH. ~

Today is the 4th which represents creative miracles in the earth. It is the 12th month which is Governmental ORDER. HOLINESS will fall from heaven and IDOLS will keep falling down….GOD is a jealous GOD. He is jealous in the most AWESOME WAY!!!! SO let HIM search your heart, and RESCUE you, so that YOU can be used to do so for others, as VICTORY rises!!!!

In HIS GRACE and HIS GLORY,

E and FAM
